Cool things happening at the "local" Korean Culture Center in LA

Kimchi Chronicles showing of episode 2

No, I am not in LA right now, but I would like to promote the Kimchi Chronicles. If you are in the area go catch a sneak peak of the 2nd and 3rd episodes in a 13 episode series to air on PBS about Korean culture and food! Made in high definition with some meaningful fun clips.

Day:  Thursday, July 14
Time: 7:30 - 8:30 pm
Where: Korean Culture Center LA

Moon Tides: The Women Divers of Jeju Island.

Attend this book session and meet the photojournalist/author Brenda Paik Sunsoo.  She will be presenting images and stories from Moon Tides. The haenyo or women of Jeju search the seas to harvest seaweed, shells, urchins, abalone among other things.  They dive deep into the waters holding their breaths for long periods of time to complete their task and work well into their 80s. Yeah, those ahjummas and halmonis are tough. Don't think about crossing them for a minute.

Peggy Myo Young Choi will also be a guest dance performer. You won't want to miss it.  Check out all the details and find out how to make reservations here.  You won't want to miss it.
